Clean, comfortable hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. A pleasure to stay somewhere that avoids the temptation to look like all other hotels and has some character. Excellent breakfast and bar food. Very good location near the city centre and close to fashionable bars and restaurants. My only reservations, which are reflected in the price, would be that I'd prefer... More

The hotels standard is high enough and that goes for basically all areas I visited; reception, rooms, breakfast area. However, I had the unlucky pleasure to be placed in room 401 which is definitely situated right next to the patio and probably situated wall-to-wall with either a kitchen area or staff facilities. Often disturbed by the sound of running water... More

The hotel nearby the city is comfortable with nice rooms and modern bathrooms. Breakfast is excellent with fresh norwegian fish and fruits - but don´t start nearly at the end of breakfast-time because everything is cleared exactly at the end of time.

We just returned from 3 nights in Oslo and can warmly recommend this hotel. We took bus Nr. 54 from central station to "Maridalsveien" which took us about 10 minutes. Then a three minutes walk and you are there. Very friendly reception, nice and clean room with aircondition, two single beds pushed together, newly renovated bathroom with spacious shower, make...

The Hotel appears to be small and comfy. Central to much of Oslo city: Five minutes walk from Grünerløkka, 15-20 minutes walk from Karl Johan and one minute from the new Food Hall. The rooms are a bit small, but it´s clean and comfy. I traveled with a large group of people who ate dinner at the Hotel one night.... More

We had a mini break at this hotel and can not fault it. The hotel is modern with excellent rooms and facilities. The staff are helpful and there is plenty of bars and restaurants in the near vicinity. If you turn right from the front of the hotel there is a well stocked supermarket where you can buy essentials and... More

Modern hotel with a modern design in rooms and bar and restaurant. Restaurant in different levels an outside terrace. Welcoming staff. Good variety at breakfast buffet. And the meals were fresh and good. Expensive though as always in Norway.
